    PEUGEOT HELP: BUYING SOON! noob

    there is (i believe) a teenager 15-17 selling this on craigslist.

    he said 250 or best. hes holding it for me to drive down on thursday (140 roundtrip).

    i think the bike is gorgeous. however, being a noob (i have one road bike, riding for a few months)

    i decided to get the experts help. he says everything is fine. someone said this may be a P4 or P6.

    if this is stock components...what is this worth?




    thanks for helping!

    '86-ish PH10. If your the end user $250 is stretching it....try for $200.

    are there any problems with this model?

    would the parts be hard to replace and repair?

    thanks for your help.

    No known issues. Parts are east to come by. Check to see if it has 27" or 700c wheels, they made the change to 700's around that time.

    i know. apparently he has no car so he cant meet me halfway or 1/3 of the way.

    i just had some lady offer trade her peugeot for a 16" dahon im selling.

    her bike has a dent in the frame andhas no derailleur or brake and something else is missing...and she started off with "i have a bike in great condition". FAIL.

    thanks you guys for the help!

    I cant wait to get this bike!

    What do you want instead of the current DT's? Its almost always cheaper to buy a bike setup the way you want it versus converting. Its more important with this bike because there isnt a single part on there thats index/STI/Ergo compatible. Not a single part!!!!

    A quich rundown to convert to indexing:

    Levers: $20 downtube
    RD: $20 for a good quality shimano
    Freewheel: $30 7-speed index compatible
    Chain: $15
    Cables: $10

    Thats a minimum of $95 assuming you can handle the work yourself.

    STI's.....add $100.
